  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 can (15 1/2 oz.) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic cloves and cook, while stirring, until onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garbanzo beans and diced tomatoes. Simmer until thickened but still saucy, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, stir in the basil, spoon in to serving bowls, and enjoy.

Easy and inexpensive. Goes great as a salad or soup topper or snack.




Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Lightly coat a roasting pan with olive oil and spread garbanzo beans in the bottom. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, toss to coat and let stand for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with seasoning mixture and shake pan to coat beans again.

Roast on bottom rack of oven shaking pan about every 15 minutes until browned and crunchy. It takes about 35 to 50 minutes to roast. Cool to obtain the crunchiness and store in an airtight container.

Here are some spice combination ideas:

For those like me who love buffalo flavored anything but not its usual powerful flavor punch in a salad this one is for you.


  • 1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • Ad

  • 3 Tbsp. hot sauce such as Frank's or Durkee, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, cut or torn into bite sided pieces
  • 4 large celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • Blue cheese dressing to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

Mix hot sauce and butter in a bowl, add garbanzo beans, toss well, scoop out with a slotted spoon, spread out on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Evenly drizzle remaining sauce over the garbanzo beans and continue to bake until crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool.

Place lettuce and garbanzo beans in a bowl, toss with blue cheese dressing and serve.

For a completely different flavor experience you can switch the parsley with 1/4 cup of fresh chopped cilantro and lime juice for the lemon juice instead ;-)


  • 1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp. red onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh Italian parsley
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Combine the beans, onion, garlic, tomato, parsley, olive oil and lemon juice together in a bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste, chill for at least 2 hours to allow flavors to blend and serve.
